Crypt Melt Questions
1) How long does it take for them to begin recovering?
My experience is that new leaves will pop back quickly, but
never like they were new. I have also noticed that along
with the meltdown, the roots rotted. So I uprooted them to
clean away the rotted roots.
Tropica suggests that you cut the roots back before planting.
2) if the plants in the 30 have gone a week without problems, does this
they will continue as they are, or can I expect them to melt sometime
Any little environmental change can cause meltdown. Fro example
3) If I suck out the scum during water canges with one of those
things, will I pull up the roots? Or do I just work around all that
they recover and establish themselves?
With a did tube, clean away all the dead leaves. Gently dig around
the roots to see if you can see if they are rotten.
I bought 4 big crypt wendtii, and only one didn't melt. One died
The others recovered, but look measly.
Hope this helps
